Comment

A nice day on the Porta ridge.
Good weather, but good timing was crucial in the ever-changing weather conditions.
During the second run towards Suntel the ridge was so weak, and with the 8/8 cloud cover, I thought the jump towards Ith will not be possible too soon. I should've had more patience. Later, searching that long for wave at Ith was a mistake - I think I was just not in time and the wave system collapsed just in front of my nose. Then making the jump back to Suntel took a lot of time as wind was not optimal any more, and thermals very weak in the area. On the last leg, nearby Rinteln, a strong thermal and a nice street was the cherry on the top.
Many thanks to the group organising the day at Porta Westfalica, very friendly and efficient as always.
